AVAILABLE FOR FOSTERING OR ADOPTION

Needs a foster home with big-dog savvy people!  Or he can be adopted too if he’s a match for you!

Maxwell is a 4-year old, shepherd mix, 100 pounds, and is a lively, fun, jumbo pooch.  After years of medical neglect Maxwell's previous owners just dropped him at the animal shelter, but SPOT stepped in and got him the care he deserves. Due to chronic ear infections that were never treated, he needed ear canal surgery and partial removal of both of his external ear flaps, so that gives Maxwell a one-of-a-kind appearance now, but he is still a very handsome big guy, don’t you think? Thankfully, he is healthy now, still hears great, and is waiting to hear from a new adoring family that he is going to be adopted by them!  Maxwell is sweet and loving toward all the people he has met. He likes to play ball and to go for car rides. He is house trained; just get him outside a couple of times a day so he can do his business. He walks well on his harness, knows to “sit” when asked, and he gives high-fives too.  Maxwell has a more dominant personality with dogs, but he plays well with other friendly, non-bossy dogs when properly introduced to them.  If you have another dog at home, it would probably work better if your dog is more submissive, but Max would also do well as the only dog in the family.  Want to meet him?  Maybe provide a foster home for a while?  Contact:  info@spotsavespets.org or you can call 760-593-7768 and leave a message.  He would love to meet you, and we’d love to arrange the meeting for you.  Adoption fee $225 includes vaccinations, neuter, and microchip.  No cost to foster him; SPOT covers all expenses for Maxwell while he’s in a foster home.

About SPOT (Saving Pets One at a Time)

About Our Rescue Group...

SPOT was created to fill the need to save animals who “fall through the cracks” in our sheltering system. Local shelters are overwhelmed—they receive so many strays and owner turn-ins that they run out of space and have to kill thousands of animals each year. The majority of these animals are healthy and simply need to be placed into a home. Others are medical cases which require some work, but do not have life-threatening diseases or injuries. And a few have some moderate behavior issues; we work with specialists to correct these behaviors before finding them their forever home. The bottom line is SPOT can save these lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of the SPOT pets are in foster homes. To meet an animal, please email us. We can tell you when the next adoption event at a local pet store will be held, or we can set up a time to meet with you.

Our Adoption Process...

SPOT adopts puppies less than 1 year- $325, dogs 1-5 yr- $225, 6 yr- $150. Our kittens are $125 and teenagers and adults are much less. We often have low pricing during kitten season.
We ask you to complete an adoption application. A home check will be scheduled to be sure there are no inadvertent dangers in your home or yard. A meet and greet will be arranged so that your whole family can meet your new pet before adopting him/her. We want to make sure it is a good fit since it is a commitment for the animal’s lifetime.
